In all the years I have lived I have never found my sound again. The reverberating cries of the girl who was slain in my custody will never escape me, and I know it is my punishment, for a soul cannot thrive in these conditions. 

On a fateful night out with friends Estelle finds herself in an accident, losing her ability to hear and forever hearing the sound of silence, but she finds her own healing. Her personal lamentations begin to cease once she finds her own masterpiece in the form of love. 

This is the story of  her revival.

This is the least cliché-ish(I doubt that there's such a word) first chapter that I've read so far. Keep it up.

Good thing I stopped on your profile to come across All The King's Men and The Sound of Silence. There different and written beautifully and I can't tell which of the new stories is going to hold a very special place in my heart.

I definitely googled “tange” and searched for a good 5 minutes ready to be racially discriminated against before I gave up because I couldn’t find anything just the read the next paragraph and find out it’s somebodies name. Goodnight 💀
